That is a first- rate plan of yours to set you up in the morning no chance for lying a little longer is there John. I saw that drawing of yours you sent to Joanne it is very well done I think Take a sketch of Pr. Du Chin if you can, and mark the house where you stay and then I can tap at the door every morning and ask for John if I choose we are all well here, write soon and may God bless you and prove the Friend that sticketh closer than Brother or sister is the prayer of your affectionate sister Sarah 00247 I hope you have received my last letter enclosed with one from Maggie and John Reid
